Treating the built environment as a living museum, the Los Angeles Conservancy will curate fifty years of modern architecture through tours, panel discussions, an innovative new website, and more. From the transformation of downtown’s Bunker Hill to 1970s and ’80s gems in Venice, Curating the City: Modern Architecture in L.A. will highlight our unparalleled modern legacy and the need to preserve it for future generations.
